Coty Jasmin de Corse
« on: January 10, 2009, 08:22:48 PM »
Tatiana's favorite perfume was Coty Jasmin de Corse. Coty introduced this perfume in 1906.

I did a Google search under the subject "coty jasmin de corse" because I wanted to see if I could find someplace where I could buy a small sample, I wanted to know what Tatiana's favorite perfume smelled like. My search led me to a website I think it was called The Perfumed Court. They offer small samples of many different perfumes to allow people to try just a very small sample. So for $29.95 (US) including shipping I bought a 1ml vglass vial of Coty Jasmin de Corse.

It came across to me as very sweet, heavy, and lingering. A very intriguing scent.

I didn't check to see if any of the perfumes the other three Grand Duchesses like are still available, but Tatiana's still is.

I'm happy to hear it! I always loved all scents, with flower smells. I'm the kind of person who likes realli romatic parfums. Different kind of Jasmin, Rose and other flower scents are created by myself with essential oyls and alcool in my own house. I must be one of the few persons who makes her own parfums! LOL. I don't like modern scents!

I'm very happy that Tatiana's favorite scents is still around and available. I think I must try it if possible.

But it costs so expensive (in Philippine peso about P1363)!
How does it smell like, multiverse (what flower flower or fruit)?
We are so unlucky here to have no jasmines and lilacs (our climate's tropical and those can't grow well).

I had read on the forum the scent was still available. But I hadn't heard a firsthand account of it. It would be interesting to see start a thread like this on all the girl's favorite perfumes, if still available.

I did a little more research. Turns out the Perfume Court once had Violette, Anastasia's favorite scent, but it has been discontinued. I cou;dn't find it anywhere else either.I couldn't find any mention of Olga's favorite scent, Rose The' anywhere.. not even what year it came out. I have often wondered if the popular very early ( perhaps the earliest of Coty perfumes) La Rose, was Olga's favorite scent, as I cannot find mention of Rose The' ANYWHERE. But, La Rose is not the same thing as Rose The', although I wish it were as a bottle of La Rose by Coty can be found at the Perfume Court for only $ 10. Rose The' must be very rare. Lilas was Marie's favorite scent, but I couldn't find it anywhere either.I did find a interesting blog post that talks about what people have said Lilas smelled like, and offers a person's thoughts on it. I will give the url- hope the link works it's http://1000fragrances.blogspot.com/2008/03/le-lilas-poupre-coty-html. I highly recomend reading it, especially if Marie is your favorite Grand Duchess. She's my favorite and until today, I had something in common with her I never realized ( not sure why, as I've known that was her favorite perfume for years). She liked this perfume best, the scent of lilacs. Lilacs are my favorite scent and flower of all time. I would thus really like to smell Lilas out of not only historical interest, but also because I would love it. On another note, I did find people were selling empty vintage bottles of Lilas online. I bet that's the case with Violette and Rose The' too. That might be the only way to get close to these lost scents- an empty vintage bottle might have some very vague remnants of the smell it once contained. I didn't check the prices or rarity of these empty vintage perfume bottles though. Update: I looked again- could only find empty Lilas bottles. There were actually two Lilas's Lilas Pourpre, 1911, as mentioned above, and Lilas Blanc- not sure of what year, think it could have been 1910. Marie's favorite could have been either one.

Has anybody smelled here Arabian jasmines? That's the only available 'jasmine' I know here in my country.
Do they smell the same?

It┤s quite sweet and if you overdo it it can be pretty heavy. But it┤s not that annoygin sweetness, it just circles around you.. it is a bit hard to explain with words how something smells.... :)

The most famous of all Coty perfumes was L ' AIMANT in the 192s-30s and it was very popular in all social classes in those days. The French Perfumes House of Coty as Tatiana used to know it, no longer exists, it is now a very large company with all sort of different brands and branches, nothing to do at all, except the name of the company, with the original Franšois Coty Perfumes House of the early 1900s.
